Spyderco Kopa Squash Yellow Jigged Bone Handles
Spyderco has produced the KOPA model for years and they constantly bring it out with new handle materials. We keep a selection in stock so you have a great variety to choose from. This new handle is a squash color yellow bone with jigging texture. We have them at www.knifecenter.com
Here is the information from Spyderco:
Limited to 600 pieces of each handle material, our ongoing Kopa Series launched in 2005 continues to grow. The Kopa Series introduced Spyderco’s first collection of refined gentlemen’s folders. Launched in 2005, the completed Series will be made up of exceptionally unique handle variations of the same model knife. Spyderco has been unveiling a new Kopa approximately every 3-4 months and will continue till the collection is complete. Although each release represents a separate model, Kopas all have a common thread; their stainless handles are individually fitted with exotic inlays.
All Kopas have stainless handles engineered for the human hand. Finger choils position the hand in contact with expansion points on the handle’s underside generating precision over the cutting edge. Kopas’ leaf-shaped blades are VG-10 and flat-ground with a thin, shaving sharp performance cutting edge. Their back-locks are positioned mid-way on the spine with a David Boye cutout for added security. Kopas carry right-handed, tip-down with a silhouette steel pocket clip. PlainEdge only.
